Here’s a gift that gives twice - once your giftee finishes off their delicious smelling, body loving peppermint sugar scrub - they can use their pretty, glittery jar to hold flowers, ribbon, pens…
I have a terrible confession. I’m an Australian who hates the beach. I know, I know, we have amazing beaches with beautiful white sand and blue waves… ugh. All I see is sand stuck to everything, swallowing salt water, shark alerts, being stung by jelly fish, sunburn and seaweed wrapping around my ankles. What I do like about the beach is how my hair looks afterwards. Well now I can have the beach waves without all the fuss - and it’s so cheap! Yay!
'Mistletoes' Last Minute Gift Kit | The Crafting Chicks
I’m totally in love with this idea - so easy to put together and so cute! All the girls in my life love nail polish, but it’s not the easiest thing to give as a gift. Regardless of the price of the polish, it’s an awkardly sized gift to give (and wrap!). But adding this cute tag and some pretty ribbon and you’ve got yourself the perfect gift!
Every time I see an awesome crochet project, it renews my wish to get my act together and finally learn how to crochet! Not only are these crochet scrubbies incredibly cute, but you’re saving money & the environment by avoiding those one use only face wipes & cotton balls. If you’re like me and can’t crochet, do as I am going to and convince a friend who can to whip some up for you!
Though I truly despise eating pumpkin, I absolutely love the smell of pumpkin pie! And there’s nothing better than a hand made sugar scrub - so easy and you can adjust the ingredients to suit. This would make a really good hostess gift for Thanksgiving too!
My friend Anna is getting married, so basically all our conversations at the moment are about that! I’m sure anyone planning one right now knows what I mean. In my wedooling (wedding googling) I came across these beautiful hair styles. Perfect for that big day, but also gorgeous for any important occasion. I could see the bottom style being perfect for a prom/formal!
This is such a good idea for us folks who always forget to take our lipstick with us in the morning (me!). You do need quick hands, but once you’ve got the hang of it, you could make a few - perfect Christmas pressies (yep, I’m already planning for Christmas!)
There seems to be a trend with my beauty DIYs - they are all delicious sounding as well as nice to put on your skin! These almond joy sugar cubes have ingredients that you could actually eat if you wanted, but I suggest scrubbing your skin instead!
I’m not a big coffee drinker and I’m not huge on black tea, but I love chai tea, especially chai lattes. The smell is amazing! So I was so excited to see this soap recipe that uses chai tea as a exfoliating base. Even better, this one also uses melt and pour soap which is incredibly simple to use, meaning you could make a few of these to give away as gifts too (if you don’t end up hoarding them all for yourself!)
If you have a job when you’re on your feet for most of the day, there’s nothing better than having a nice soak at the end of the day. This scrub has peppermint in it which according to Tuts+ is cooling and deodorizing and thyme which has an exfoliating effect. So relax, read a book (or S+T!) and soak your feet and give them a good scrub.
There are so many long hair tutorials out there, but not a ton for short hair. So you can imagine how surprised i was to find a collection on all places as BuzzFeed! Crazy. But hey, there’s 20 of em, count em, 20, for us cropped locked gals. I absolutely love the first one pictured, the side knot. Check out the rest on the click through!
Oh my gosh, this is exactly how I curled my hair when I was little! I was way too much of a wuss to sleep in curlers. Rag rolling is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it, and isn’t going to damage your hair like a curling iron or hot rollers might. Just make sure of two things - that your hair is damp (not wet!) and that you give it enough time to curl. I usually did it before going to sleep. You wake up with pretty, soft wavy hair. This is also fantastic for little ones!
Melt & Pour soap is one of the most fun things you will ever use! It’s incredibly easy to use and you can add whatever you want to it. FYB has three amazing combos that sound like they would smell amazing. I think I might have to try the orange, sage and bergamont.
Neon is more tame now than it’s previous incarnations (80’s and 90’s girls - I’m sure you know what I mean!) by being paired with neutrals like white, black and tan. If you’re still having flashbacks of once super cool and now super cringe-worthy all neon outfits but still want to get in on the action, this incredibly chic design will be sure to please - just a little pop of neon orange is enough to take beige from blah to wow!
I love cherry blossom - in fact, I hope to go to Japan one day for the Cherry Blossom Festival (just need to keep saving those dollars!) Until that day, I’m just going to have to pretend I’m there with this delectable scrub. And it couldn’t be easier to make - click through for the whole tutorial.
